Formula Driving Suppression

Alexandre_WamainAlexandre_Wamain Member, csevp Posts: 16 PRO
I have encountered a scenario in my assembly such that I'd like a certain part to be suppressed given a range of user input values. Currently, I am hiding the part by offsetting it behind a pattern if I am within a certain range. This works/looks fine in my model but if I am within a certain range my bill of materials will call out an extra part when it is unnecessary. Ideally, there'd either be a way to omit the part from the bill of material given a certain input, or I could suppress it altogether.

Looking at previous posts this doesn't appear to be currently possible?

    There's not a way (yet 🤞) to drive it with a formula directly, but sometimes you can use ternary functions and arrays to get something kind of like that going on. Do you mind sending a screenshot of your configuration inputs so I get a better idea of what you're going for?
